Do your research.

I looked at one about a year ago. Returned it because of issues relating to streaming to my Chromecast and the Amazon Fire. The extender uses its own network name (yournetworkname_ext or similar),
Unfortunately there was no extender support as a passthru for the Chromecast or Fire.

I never had an extender. I read that they work, but at some cost to speed.

► Tell us how well your extender works if you get one. Or if location or a better modem/router does the job
